Realms Platform Privacy Notice
Last Updated: August 17, 2022
This Privacy Notice is designed to help you understand how Solana Technology Services LLC (“STS,” “we,” “us,”or “our”) collects, uses, processes, and shares your personal information on the Realms Platform (https://realms.today/realms), and to help you understand and exercise your privacy rights.
An Important Note regarding Blockchain Technologies: If you participate in our Services relating to the creation and management of a decentralized autonomous organization (“DAO”), smart contracts will be employed that necessarily collect information, such as your cryptocurrency wallet address (which some legal jurisdictions may consider personal information), and that information will be stored on a public blockchain that we do not control. A smart contract is computer code that automatically processes events when certain conditions are met; for example, when a proposal is presented to a member’s DAO and after all needed votes are made by respective DAO member, the smart contract will execute the proposed action if the proposal passed. In these situations, your personal information will be stored on that blockchain through the execution of a smart contract and may not be able to be modified or deleted due to the immutable nature of the blockchain.
Changes to our Privacy Notice. We may revise this Privacy Notice from time to time in our sole discretion. If there are any material changes to this Privacy Notice, we will notify you as required by applicable law. You understand and agree that you will be deemed to have accepted the updated Privacy Notice if you continue to use our Services after the new Privacy Notice takes effect.
